Friday Links

By the end of today, I'll be an official Athens resident. Needless to say, I'm excited. Anyone in town who wants to grab a beer and talk football, let me know. (PS -- you're buying.)

In the meantime, here are some links to get you through the next eight hours 'til the weekend...

Friends of the Program asks a simple question: Are you smarter than an SEC official?

ESPN's Chris Low wants to know just how good Georgia QB Matt Stafford really is. UGA fans ought to hope that Low isn't the only person this season to confuse the numbers with the real production.

Check out Mark Richt chatting with a Chattanooga news station before the recent Bulldog Club meeting there.

The Gainesville Sun ranks Knowshon Moreno as the SEC's second best player . Wanna take a shot in the dark at who No. 1 will be?

The AJC's Mark Bradley blogs that Georgia should be taking Tech seriously this year. I don't argue, though I think it's great that referred to it as "nerd optimism."

Also from the AJC, apparently the Dolphins are working out former Georgia QB Quincy Carter . Carter most recently spent time in the AFL, where he battled a former South Georgia Wildcat, D. Bryant, for the starting job. I find it hard to believe even Miami is this desperate, but I suppose everyone deserves a second chance.

And finally, I know this is a bit off topic, but I'm curious your thoughts: What's more pathetic -- Brett Favre insisting he gets to play for one of his team's arch rivals or Brett Favre admitting he'll stay retired for the right price?

Bradley is writing to get response and he did a good job of that: look at the number of responses.

He makes too much of the spread. Georgia has seen a lot of spread since WVA and they have adjusted. Also, Josh Nesbitt and Jonathan Dwyer are not Pat White and Steve Slayton repackaged. It takes more than a scheme or formation to win a ballgame, it takes talent.

Tech might beat UGA next year (09) as the programs of good coaches, and Paul Johnson is a good coach, usually make the most from year one to year two just like you see the most improvement in a team from week one to week two of a season.

If they miss next year it will be four or five years before they accomplish it.
